Other Ways to Give

You can help protect wilderness for generations to come by giving to The Wilderness Society.


At The Wilderness Society, we are working to complete a system of protected wildlands in the United States and we need your help.

Your tax-deductible gift will help us continue this important land conservation work. With your gift, you are leaving behind a legacy of wilderness support and ensuring that American wildlands thrive for generations to come

Giving Through Your Will

You can support The Wilderness Society by leaving a gift through your will or estate plan.

Workplace Giving

Making a donation through payroll deduction is one of the easiest and cost-efficient ways to help protect wilderness.

Giving Stock

Gifts of stocks, bonds or mutual funds appreciated in value may be especially attractive to you under the current tax laws.

Contribute Mutual Fund Shares

Much like a gift of stock, mutual funds are another way that you can make a larger gift than you might ordinarily be able to give – simply by giving shares of mutual funds you've owned for more than one year.

Endowment Funds

The Wilderness Society is committed to ensuring the long term protection of our public lands through the development and management of Endowment Funds.

By contributing to a Wilderness Society Endowment Fund you are investing in the future of America’s public lands.

  • “We Can’t Wait: Why we need reform of the federal coal program now,” shows how the industry has been passing on millions in costs every day to the public. The status quo of the program has impacted public lands to the tune of billions of dollars and could multiply if coal companies aren’t held responsible for cleanup as they go bankrupt. Damages due to climate change from mining emissions will cost billions and drinking water for entire cities could be lost to mining or polluted beyond safe drinking levels.
